Medical
French term or phrase: extrapolé à
Context: statistical study of a medical discipline.

I'm finding this sentence a little convoluted and wonder if someone could suggest a translation.

"Si la tendance avec les inscriptions en médecine est exatrapolée à 50% d'inscriptions femmes pour hommes dans les facultés et que nous reports ce pourcentage d'inscriptions aux demandes faites en [name of medical discipline], cela veut dire que dans 10 ans, 24% des [practitioners of this discipline] seront des femmes."

Thanks for your help. I was getting a little confused by the prepositions. Here's what I ended up with: "If the trend in enrollment in medicine is extrapolated to 50% of female enrollments for men in medical schools and we then compare this percentage of enrollments to the number of applications received in [name of discipline
], this means that in 10 years, 24% of [practitioners] in will be women."
